My personal take on the above story:
This is another one of those phenomena out there where you have a whole slew of different types of people all saying the same kinds of things. How do you explain that? Mass delusion? Shared dreams? Or is there something more to it.
As a Christian with a Biblical worldview I’m firmly convinced this is overt demonic activity that we can expect a continued increase in as we move forward in the general season of the Lord’s return.
Matthew 24 and Luke 17 both have Jesus Himself describing conditions on the Earth being “like the days of Noah” in the season leading up to His return. Luke 17 has an extra item of detail where Jesus also includes days of Lot. When you put these two items together it paints a very disturbing picture to say the least.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-10
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
If you have looked over any of my previous blog entries than you know that I am firmly convinced we are definitely in the season leading up to the Lord’s return. I have bolded and underlined the key word in that above passage. All means all as in “all bets are off” and that’s how I view something like this Mothman creature, UFOs, and other phenomena along those lines.
Needless to say if I ever am going about my business and ever have something like this happen to me I’ll be rebuking in the name of Jesus immediately and asking questions later. I recommend you do likewise for any kind of encounter like this. If you are a person that is a victim of sleep paralysis, UFO abductions, or anything else along those lines you need to do this even if you aren’t a believer. Why? Because it works. The seculars know that rebuking and calling on the name of Jesus works every time for putting an end to these sorts of encounters and they are mystified by it and they don’t like the ramifications which is why you don’t hear about it. The research is out there that proves it. Example: http://ufodigest.com/news/0109/abductions-stopped.html
All of this is demonic and should be handled accordingly in the same way.
We don’t need to be afraid of these things if we’re on the right side: The side of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t tarry to make that key decision to come to know the Lord personally because stories like these are just more evidence that there isn’t a lot of time left before the page get turned.
